We are told:
"Northwest Americana with a southern accent," says Lindley, when asked to describe his band's sound. "It draws on roots-rock, and a wide swath of musical influences from growing up in Eastern Washington and North Idaho."
Powered by Lindley's strong lyrical content and storytelling ability, and backed-up by a tight band of musicians, Lindley and company can be soft when they need to be, or harder-edged Americana when the songs call for it.
One listen through Late Bloomer and you'll have heard blues, Americana, rockabilly, and Nashville twang influences. But, Late Bloomer is fully rooted in the Northwest and has a strong Northwest ascetic, which has helped the band garner support slots in the region for national acts including Blues Traveler, Jason Isbell, The Mother HIps, and even Foreigner.
With the forthcoming release of his latest, more opportunities should open up for Lindley and his band. From the title track and lead single, with its smooth, melodic finish yet still rough around the edges hooks, to the bar-rock of "Slammin' Doors," or the danceable "No One Remembers," through the blues-infused "Ex-Girlfriend Song," Lindley takes you on a ride and doesn't let go until the final note.
